What did police say?
Does the neighbour own or rent?
owns his home.police say theve been round + cant find no heat source ,from that i take it theyre only intrested in drugfarms.text 2 officers today no answer
Yes, that was what wasconfusing me, the reference to a heat source. As you quite rightly say, that isgenerally only relevant to drug farms where they have to have the heat topropagate plants.
There appears to be noevidence that this is drug-related so for now, is probably not worth going downthat route.
The situation you are in therefor is exactly the same as if he is a cigarette smoker.
There are two elements whichyou can possibly bring an action in respect of: the first is, in respect of thedog noise and the continual barking and the second is, in respect of the smoke.It is worth referring both of these to the Environmental Health Department atthe local Council because whilst the dog noise is not a health problem it is anenvironment problem.
In addition to the EnvironmentalHealth Department you also have the potential claim which you could take tocourt in common-law nuisance . You are going to have to have some evidence(recording or whatever and dates and times) of the smoke and the noise.
It is not going to be a cheapor easy application if it gets to court but to avoid that, initially, asolicitors letter might wake the neighbour up to do something about both
